The Mountaineers are ready to learn from the film and move on after the loss to Oklahoma State. But first, a quick back at the good and bad.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The struggles for West Virginia are likely as emotional as they are physical following the overtime loss to No. 21 Oklahoma State. But for the defense, it seems primed to learn and move on.

A disappointed Shaq Petteway, above, detailed some of the areas that went well for West Virginia, like the halftime aadjustments and the ability to limit Oklahoma State in the running game. But Petteway also touches on the isssues of concern, incluidng the emotional standpoint of a team that will be tested in the coming weks with games against top five teams in TCU and Baylor. Petteway also talks about the differences in the first and second half, and playing the defense without Karl Joseph

Safety Jarrod Harper, below, replaced Joseph in the line-up and got a solid review from defensive coordinator Tony Gibson. Harper speaks to his play and what it's like to attempt to replace an All-Big 12 player. He also discusses the in-game adjustments, what the OSU tape presented against what WVU saw on the field and how the Mountaineers can begin to refocus with top shelf games on the horizon.

And finally, Daryl Worley discusses his play, mantahcing up against the Cowboys; superior size on the outside, defending against the back shoulder throw and his take on his intercpetion. Worley also notes how West Virginia can regroup, and try to hone in on its next challenges, which include a pair of road trips over the next few weeks, which could spiral a season downward before the end of October.
